At Ullman Sails we use the highest quality materials in our products.  Our Red Line series of Asymmetrical Spinnakers is no exception.  We primarily use Airx Nylon for these sails due to its incredible durability, resistance to stretch, and shock dampening characteristics. For its weight Airx is stronger without making the spinnaker too nervous allowing the spinnaker to sail in it’s designed shape at a much higher percentage of the time.  This translates into extremely fast sailing.


Ullman Sails has been an industry leader in the Asymmetric Spinnakers with early success in the Melges 24’s, International 14’s, and Australian 18’ skiff’s, followed more recently by the huge success in the J-105’s, Flying Tigers, and off shore sled racing.  Ullman Sails has used Airx cloth in all of these classes to help improve our already fast designs. 

No matter what racing you do Ullman Sails can make you a fast easy to trim durable spinnaker using Airx Nylon.  Contact Ullman Sails for more information on how to make your boat faster.
